Anna Gonzalez

Former Undergraduate Intern

I’m a rising junior at the University of Washington majoring in Biology. I’m interested in going into healthcare in the future. I’m also interested in learning about the ways in which computer science is used in research and getting to know more about obtaining data in a lab setting.

As an intern with the Gibbons lab, I will be using MICOM and clinical data to complete an association analysis between predicted gas production versus self-reported bloating. Following this, I will investigate the association between predicted gas and bacteria in the microbiome of the gut. I’ll also be working on investigating whether different microbes of the same genera are able to grow in the same environment or are in competition with each other.

Outside of academics, I enjoy exploring national parks, going on hikes, embroidering, and exploring new places around Seattle.
